The Bible takes a real view of life. In Acts 12, Peter is miraculously delivered from prison and there is a verse in this story that made me laugh:
“And behold, the angel of Lord stood next to him, and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter in the side and woke him . . .” (7)
I love it! Peter was such a hard sleeper that an angel of Lord appearing in his prison cell could not wake him up! Most peoples reactions to angels is to fall on their face; Peter’s reaction is to role over and continue snoring!
If you struggle getting out of bed in the morning, take heart Peter did too! 🙂
